Overview
Does "race" really matter? Seeking to establish that human beings are overwhelmingly similar when it comes to genetic makeup, Unander, an honored geneticist, argues that the term "race" implies greater differences among groups of human beings than is supposed by the genetic evidence. By debunking the premise of The Bell Curve and exploring the history of how science has been abused to justify racism, this astonishing new book weaves together science and history to offer foundations for biblical and thological perspectives on questions of "race

Publishers Description
Exploring the history of how science has been abused to justify racism, this astonishing new book weaves together science and history to offer foundations for biblical and theological perspectives on questions of "race". In this response to the controversial The Bell Curve, Unander argues that human beings are overwhelmingly similar when it comes to genetic makeup and that the term "race" implies greater differences among groups of human beings than is supported by the genetic evidence.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
excellent book  Dec 22, 2007
I read this book about a year ago. I can't believe I'm only getting around to writing a review on it now. The author does a great job of exposing the myth of race. I have been preaching the same thing for years, but when I try to tell people that there is no such thing as race, they don't seem to get it. With this book it's hard not to get it. The author puts all of the facts and arguments together in such a cogent way that it exposes the idea of race as the myth that it is. The idea of race was invented 500 years ago to justify Western Europeans genocide in the colonial world, and there are no phenotypic or genotypic bases for it. If we go back just 600 years we all have several million ancestors. My father was born in Ireland. He was what we call black Irish. My earliest ancestors in Ireland were probably Spanish sailors whose ships sunk with the defeat of the Spanish Armada. So my roots actually go back to Spain, and Spain was occupied for hundreds of years by the Moors (Muslims from Africa). So there is a good chance that my great, great, great, etc. grandfather was also the ancestor of Kunta Kinta. What does that make me? Am I white or Black? How many ancestors do we have to have from a certain region to establish ourselves of one race or the other?

 
Very highly recommended reading for personal and group study  Mar 19, 2001
In Shattering The Myth Of Race: Genetic Realities And Biblical Truths, Dave Unander addresses the concept of race from a Christian perspective while surveying race and economics; slavery and abolition in the United States; the development of genetics as a biological science; DNA comparison studies; and evolutionary genetics as an argument for "racial superiority". Of particular interest is Unander's concluding chapter "A Christian Perspective on Race: Personal Reflections". Very highly recommended reading for personal and group studies, the informative, thoughtful text is enhanced with an epilogue and a list of references.
